Userscripts


Dashboard

Scripts in this category may also be active on other pages

  • 2Cool4Progress(Total Progress Percentage Bar) by Pep95: Displays total percentage distribution of all SRS stages. Allows for segmenting of substages of Apprentice and Guru as well. Allows for custom colours and has an auto colour range implementation. Gives the option to remove the level-specific progress for people who are done with lessons. The bar can be above and below the SRS stage section, or can replace the level-specific progress section instead.

  • Burn Manager by @rfindley: Review, resurrect, or retire your burned items, individually or in bulk, using “level” and “item type” criteria.

  • Burn Progress by Rrwrex: Displays overall progress (burned/in-progress/unseen).

  • Condensed Progress Bars by @DaisukeJigen: Condenses the progress bars so the 0 and X numbers are inside the bar, and the goal now states the number of kanji needed, instead of 90%.

  • Custom Immersive Dashboard by NekomoriKimiko: completely replaces the vanilla WaniKani dashboard with one entirely in Japanese purely for immersion (excepting system banners). The intent is to also display some more useful information on the dashboard in terms of summary breakdowns and item information on hover rather than needing to go to a separate page every time. The settings for this has translations so that even the creator can keep up with the immersion!

The script is partially visible on the dashboard, clicking on it sends you to the rebuilt critical condition page which is then used for leeches instead.

  • Lesson/Review Count in Forums by @rfindley: In the forums, display the time until your next review, and the number of lessons and reviews currently available.

  • Like Counter by @Kumirei: Adds a counter for how many likes you have left before you run out. Useful if you’re the kind of user who runs out often.

  • More Comment Style Buttons by @DaisukeJigen: Adds more styling buttons to the reply box.

  • Prioritize Japanese glyphs by polv: This script fixes Han unification that changes many Kanjis into Chinese variants (like 誤解). This problem, however, only haunts community.wanikani.com, but not wanikani.com itself. Note that WaniKani Community might not be only website that needs fixing.

  • Quote Whole Post by @Kumirei: Adds a button to the bottom of each post. Clicking this button is the same as clicking the button in the reply box. Essentially all it does is click the reply button on the post, wait 100ms, then click the quote whole post button.

  • Read every day challenge updater by @Gorbit99: This challenge is a companion script to the Read Every Day Challenge threads. It’s meant to automate the daily progress updates that you have to do if you follow along. It automatically increments your completed day counter in the second post and if you’ve linked one there, it will update the checkmark in your homepost. Alongside these, it will copy-paste a template into your reply box so you don’t need to copy it yourself.

  • Keep Open State by polv: This UserScript to meant to keep [details] or <details> tags open while editing; a big problem for me while editing a Wiki, or an extra long thread, with a lot of collapses - opened and when edited, they close themselves.

  • Emoter by @Kumirei: Add custom emoji list to WaniKani Forum. (See the linked post for commands.)

  • Bottled Wanimekani by @Kumirei: WaniMekani is the forum’s one and only bot. Yes, a bot! @WaniMekani See! It had a couple of commands that anyone could use. You could roll dice, and ask the 8 ball questions, and ask for a quote, and… That’s it really. Still, it was a lot of fun! Well, it was disabled in 2018 for reasons. Since then we have been a botless society. This script channels WaniMeKani through you. Just like before you can use commands to talk to WaniMeKani, only it responds in your own post.

Not a bad start, I think you should add Wanikanify and the Stroke Order Script to the list.

You’ve got a type dennmary should be dennmart

I also made this one: Scrollbox. It may be intensive but I think a lot of people would find it useful.

@astrex
i’ll add them in. right now i’m basically just going through all the threads in the “list of api and third party apps” section and adding everything i see, i’ll get to them both eventually. thank you for the recommendations though!

@baerrach
thank you, i didn’t realize. i’m not on my usual computer so i’ve been making a lot of typos, and i must have missed that one when i was proofreading. thank you!

@samuel-h
i’ll add it in soon, probably in this update or the next one. it’s easier to keep track of stuff if i just go through the entire section on the forums thread by thread, so i’ll stick to that method for now. thank you :slight_smile:

For the Android, don’t forget the discontinued but feature-rich WaniKani Mobile and the redder WaniKani Android apps.

Since you are adding community works under “Additional Content,” add BreadstickNinja’s 930+ kana-only words available on Anki and Excel from the second reply of this thread.

That’s all I can think of that aren’t already in the list in the OP.  Great work so far!

You accidentally put the wrong link for the Listening Comprehension Chrome extension. It goes to the Review Order userscript page, not Listening Comprehension!

Also, thanks for this updated list! :slight_smile:

Another web application that you might want to add is WaniKani Stats, which is similar to Kiko’s site, but a little more streamlined (and prettier, if you ask me).

Thanks for putting all these together.

 Is it just me or is that page not working?
BFBullpup said... Is it just me or is that page not working?
 Working fine for me.  The "Progress" tab takes ages to load for me (probably because of my level), but other than that, it's all dandy.

@BFBullpup
added all three, thank you

@ads17
thank you, i didn’t realize. fixed.

@pushindawood

I don’t know if it applies but you can put my Wan-ki template up.

You should add duendecat in web apps. http://duendecat.com/

And be loyal by adding Viet’s One Kanji a Day. http://one.kanji.website/

 I just tried it on Opera instead of my usual Chrome browser and it worked perfectly.  Thanks for setting me straight.  I have a question of my own but will post it in the correct thread so I don't hijack this one.

Timeline:  Places a timeline for upcoming reviews on the dashboard screen.  This is a standalone version for people who don’t want to run the WK Customizer.  It also has some improvements over that version.  (It takes a few seconds to load, depending on WK server speed.)

DotDotDot Expander:  Replaces truncated English answers with full text on certain screens (e.g. “Annual Rev…”  –> “Annual Revenue”).

Level Duration: Shows the number of days since your last level-up. (You have to level up once before script shows anything).

 For Timeline I looked at the code and I don't feel confident it prevents the issues of timeout from the other version which make it unusable after level 40 unless both your connection and WK are in a good mood.

 Good to know... I hadn't heard of that issue.  I'm working on a highly improved version anyway, so maybe I'll re-mention it here when it's done.  I'm integrating it with a bigger data framework that caches lots of data to eliminate the vast majority of API calls that various scripts require.

 Can you link to the thread that has the code base for this?
